Pros:

An Ivy Bridge,
Runs Fairly Cool,
Blazing Speed,
Good Performance for the Price (see other thoughts),
Super Easy Install

Cons:

Could be a bit cheaper,
Could run a bit cooler (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts:

In reference to the price, while you still get great performance at this price point, you could dish out an extra $30 bucks and get the fully unlocked version and have fun. Honestly if this is your first build, just spend the extra money as overclocking your CPU is one of the most fun experiences you can have. Its super easy, and once you have some moderate experience and a nice aftermarket cooler you can more than make up the money you spend with greatly increased performance.

I've heard and read a lot regarding the new Ivy bridges and their inefficient heat dissipation. And upgrading myself from a Sandy Bridge I3 to this, i can tell you that under heavy load, my temps are way more than double what they were even with a great aftermarket cooler i bought just for this. I've applied a gratuitous amount of thermal paste and checked and rechecked my airflow and i can say for certain that under heavy loads Ivy's don't perform as well as their cousins.
